Leading by 8-0 at the end of the first half,
the Saugus Freshmen managed to outscore the
Winthrop team in the first game of the 1974
season in front of a crowded home cheering
section. Keith Manning gained a total of 37
yards rushing giving him a 4. 1 yards per carry
average while Dan Hashem gained a 55 yard
total for an average of 3. 6 yards per carry.
Although Saugus was shutting out Winthrop
in the third quarter, an apparent let down in
the 4th quarter saw the Saugus team squeeze
by with a 16-14 victory.
Outstanding offensive effort was noted in
the jobs done by Paul Nigro, Keith Manning,
Dan Hashem and the quarterback, George
Nicolo, who completed 4 out of 5 passes. The
defensive team was greatly aided by the ef-
forts of Billy Osgood and Frank Serino.
In the second game of the season the
Gloucester Fishermen romped over Saugus
with a 14-0 score. The third game saw Sau-
gus overcome by Marblehead 6-0.
The following week Saugus managed to
reverse the score with a 6-0 victory over
Eastern Jr. High of Lynn. The winning points
were scored in the last 40 seconds of the
game. Manning showed notable defensive
effort while Hashem aided the offensive unit.
Swampscott outscored Saugus in a well
played game the next week with a 20-0 score.
With over half the season over the Saugus
team had a 2-3 record but the spirit and the
persistence of the coached was transferred to
the team as they prepared to meet Breed of
The work and the effort of the team paid
off as Saugus brought home a 20-14 victory
Eric Pizzotti, who made an 8 yard run after
receiving a 7 yard pass from Billy Osgood,
scored 6 points. Billy Osgood then scored 12
points using a quarterback keep from the one
yard line both times.
Fawcett scored a 2 point conversion
on a pass from Osgood using the FERN
For the first time the line was able to
open holes for the running backs. Outstand-
ing play was shown again by Dan Hashem
with blocks from fullback Keith Manning.
Outstanding defensive play was put in by
Mike McCarthy, Paul Serino, and Allan
Virgin. The entire 50 member team played
in this second TOTAL TEAM victory.
On Friday, November 8, 1974, the
Saugus team overcame Danvers 18-0. Ha-
shem, Manning and Fawcett each scored 6
points. Hashem 's points came after a 17
yard run. Manning scored on a 4 yard run
and Fawcett scored on a pass from Osgood.
The defensive team played its best game
up to that point using both a 5-2 and 4-3
defensive pattern to stunt Danvers offense.
Outstanding defensive players were Cash, Nigro and Doyle. An
example of the defensive technique was when Danvers had a first
and 10 on the Saugus 25 yard line and the Saugus defense got
together and soon it was fourth and 55 on the Danvers 20 yard line.
Offensively Saugus had control of the game from the start.
Great running was noted in the performances of Hashem and Man-
ning. Other outstanding players were Riley and Paul Serino.
Since the entire 50 man squad played in this game, it, too,
was a TOTAL TEAM victory.
The following week the n A" team lost a well played defensive
game to Salem, who was sporting a 7-0 season. Playing well in
this defensive effort were Paul Serino, Bob Spacer and Harold
Cash. The remainder of the defensive unit is to be commended as
well. The half time score was 8-0 and the final of 24-0 saw Sau-
gus in defeat. Salem's coach did remark about the Saugus team
in the following manner: "You (Saugus) were the hardest hitting
team we have played. "
" . . . Down When Defeated, Nonchalanant When Victorious . . ."
The Saugus Freshmen Have A 5-4 Season
Entering the final game of the season with an even
4-4 record, the Saugus team vowed to make this a
winning season. Even though the Saugus schedule was
the toughest in the Junior High history, the Saugus
Frosh thought positively and worked hard the final week
of the season in preparation for the Beverly game.
On November 21, 1974, the Saugus Freshmen man-
aged to make their season record a winning 5-4 with
a 28-8 romp over Beverly.
The points came in the first half with a quarterback
sneak by Osgood, giving Saugus a 6-0 advantage. In
the second half Hashem scored both a touchdown on a
sweep and a 2 point conversion. Manning, on a pass
from Coffey, scored another 6 points while Hashem
again went in for the 2 points after. Finally, Fawcett,
also on a pass from Coffey, scored 6 points, making
the final score Saugus 28-Beverlv 8.
Again good defensive techniques prevented Beverly
from scoring. The offense had its best day of the en-
tire season by taking advantage of the JET PASS, which
opened up the game for Saugus.
To recap the season the coaches had two remarks:
"The team played all year as though seeking a goal.
It wasn't until the final three games that the goal be-
came clear — to win! This goal helped to move the
team on to a winning season. "
"Down when defeated; nonchalant when victorious;
it wasn't until the final win produced a successful sea-
son that the team as a whole understood the meaning
of winning. "

The 1974 - 1975 Freshman Basketball team, although not the biggest team Saugus has had, has managed to
have one of the best records ever. As of the time that this publication went to the printers, the team had a 15-4
record and was planning to compete in the Newton Police Athletic Association Invitational tournament for the
top 16 teams in the state.
Many individual records have been broken as well as team records. Keith Manning has broken the records of
John Nicolo and Steve Gannon for most field goals with 175. Paul Serino was closing in on the record held in 1971
by his brother, Rich Serino for most assists.

The Thunderbird Staff
The 1975 Thunderbird staff was an extensive one.
Since it involved so many students at so many different
times, we can say that it was truly a grade nine staff.
Special mention should be given to:
Marianne Kelly for her diligent effort in writing the
Audrey Rossetti, Elizabeth Keane and Dawn Woods for
their artistic efforts
Gerry Tambeau for her literary effort
All those grade nine students who helped count the
Who's Who votes - you know who you are - thanks!
Mr. Harold Zeltsar for his great photo work - thanks
Everyone who helped make this a success - thanks

YESTERDAY ONCE MORE
Yesterday once more,
It's coming from behind the door
The door of success and happiness
And never a moment of loneliness.
A brand new day
In a special way
In which you will find
Your own peace of mind.
A way in which you will always do well
In whatever you may do
A way in which will always tell
What's specially right for you.
This message you will need
In helping yourself to succeed
And the answer is found behind the door
Where once again is yesterday once more.
Maybe we should have taken shop???
Cute? Why he's a real doll!
We're getting ready for you Bobby Riggs.
